Sorry have just put all the details of incident on our initial chat,
I received a PCN in June for parking outside bay area, not within lines. It is a notoriously difficult parking lot that is difficult to manoeuvre in and congested making it hard to get a perfect fit. I responded to PCN as instructed on reverse of tkt, HOW TO CHALLENGE THIS TKT, via email within 3 days. I received no response. I followed this up with several subsequent emails explaining my position and including photos of bay to illustrate point. I was anxious for a response as I wanted to avoid doubling fine if my challenge was rejected. I kept a detailed record of all my correspondence believing this proved intent and that I had responded within time limit.I recieved a notice to Owner in July, and a charge cert in Aug, no response to challenge tho, so I kept writing asking why they had not responded to initial emails providing copies of all, saying I would not pay increased fine. They provide no way other than post or email to contact them making communication difficult. In sept I recieved an Enquiry Response rejecting my challenge saying it was to late! Again I responded including hard copies of all communication detailing my immediate challenge as I felt I should not have to pay more than initial tkt. In Jan I received Order for Recovery and filled out form provided asking to make a statement and detailing events. I received nothing more until 2 weeks ago when I received notice from Bailiff.I want to know if I should file TE9 again and TE7 to file a statement, fine has now gone from 30 to £414 for Attendance to remove.
A defence yes, but actually don't care to pursue that as I have no evidence other than photos from a different day. What I do want to contest at this point is escalation in fee
Yes, responded to each notice immediately and have copies of all emails, letters etc.
what is out of time stat dec?
